What do you think of gap teeth in adults?

Attractive? Unattractive? Who cares? I have a small gap between my two front teeth. I had braces as a kid but it came back. I have since learned it is a skeletal problem, not orthodontal (sp?) and I would need jaw surgery plus braces again to fix it which would be crazy expensive and there is a long painful recovery. I guess I'll have to live with it but I hate smiling because of it. I think it's hideous, but other people claim they never noticed or there's nothing wrong with it. What do you all think? Any opinion either way?

There is nothing wrong with that! I have sort of buck teeth where my two front teeth are bigger than the rest but I have learned to accept how I am :). You are beautiful no matter what your teeth look like.

I have gap teeth and I don't really care. I have also never had anyone have any issues with it either. My SO says they are cute.

I have a teeny tiny gap in my teeth. You can't really see it in pictures, but it's there. It was a lot worse when I was a kid. *shrug*

I think it's unattractive. I saw this model on America's Next Top Model, and she had a huge gap between her teeth... and  all I could think was "how is she a model".
